Call Me Barbara 


"Call me Barbara" is a short documentary film that looks into the two greatest desires of a 22-year old boy from the suburbs of Skopje: first of all, to become a girl, and then, to become a pop star. Faced with the everyday challenges of the homophobic Balkan reality, she tries to remain true to the voice within.
